Fayette Eagles Hold Off Blaine Thorp Fueled Rampage To Defeat Montpelier, 50-38


MONTPELIER – Fayette Coach Todd Mitchell has always stressed a four-quarter game…finish what you started. This year, the BBC front-running Eagles have done a good job of closing out games, but Blaine Thorp of the Montpelier Locomotives gave the Screamin’ Eagles pause on January 26 as Fayette held on to take a 50-38 win on the road.

The Eagles jumped out to an early lead, and held a 19-12 advantage at the half. Fayette went on a 19-2 third period run to go into the fourth quarter with what appeared to be an insurmountable 24-point bulge, but then Thorp went to town. The senior shootist gave the fans in The Railyard something to cheer about, as he hit on 16 of his game-high 23 points in the fourth period. Koby Biddix saved the double-digit margin for the Eagles with a pair of fourth quarter rainmakers, and the clock finally put an end to the furious Montpelier rally.

Cole Burkholder and Tyler Cox each hit on a team-high 14 points for the Eagles, with Biddix and Logan Franks each getting 6 points, Chandler Sanford and Zayne Colegrove 4 points apiece, and Alec Hylander and Patty Hookstadt draining a free throw apiece.

Cody Caudill struck for 9 points in support of Thorp for Montpelier, with Jacob Leung adding 4 points and Jared Shoup a deuce.
